The Kid And Me


A Street Portrait Gets Good The bullet points should tell you everything that you need to know about making a picture like this one. But, just in case. No matter how well you plan for every possible situation when you arrive on the scene everything changes. As boxer Mike Tyson said, “You can plan forContinue reading “The Kid And Me”

Song of the Seasons


I’ ve been feeling out of sorts for the past couple of days. I know where I should be. I know where I’m not. I have a kind of fear. I know that CoVid-19 is not going away any time soon. Most medical professionals who study this stuff are saying that it’s time to liveContinue reading “Song of the Seasons”

Another Night


S ee? I kept my word. Sorta. Fewer photographs than yesterday, more than tomorrow. I think. Enjoy these images. I enjoyed making them. A word of WordPress complaint. I didn’t want to do this, but it never stops. I added yesterday’s post at the same time that I added this one. I was very lateContinue reading “Another Night”

And, so…


O kay, okay. I got a little crazy. What do you expect from a guy who loves photographing Mardi Gras but can’t? So, I thought that I would show you a little bit of what I saw over the past few years. I’ll continue doing it for the next two weeks, but I won’t postContinue reading “And, so…”

Carnival


I thought I would do something different today. We, in New Orleans, have started our celebrations for Carnival.  So, that’s in my head. It’s also a way to get out of a dark place. The one that is influenced by the real world as opposed to the fantasyland that we live in on a daily basis.Continue reading “Carnival”

Their Way


On the way to someplace else. That’s how I made this picture. I parked my car and started walking to the parade route. I saw this. Even without the woman sitting there, the house would have made a good picture. The woman just made the picture wonderful. As usual, I asked if she minded beingContinue reading “Their Way”

St. Charles Avenue


St. Charles Avenue. I didn’t travel on this street very much during the parade season. I usually seek out little back streets to make it to and from home. But, I happened to pass by a few days ago. I was truly amazed to see the little city of parade ladders, folding chairs, folk art andContinue reading “St. Charles Avenue”

A Break in the Action. Sort of.


No not from me. But, there is a short lull in the Mardi Gras parades. Until Tomorrow. Wednesday. This is good. It gives my sore legs a chance to recover. So. Instead. You get to see what I saw as I moved around town. Mardi Gras 2015.

Like Children


Finally. There are just a few more minutes to wait. Watchers gather on balconies. The krewes prepare themselves. The parades roll. These pictures were made just prior to the start. Excitement was in the air. Food and drink were in everybody’s hands. Anticipation. It’s time to start. Just like children on Christmas morning. Krewe du Vieux.Continue reading “Like Children”
